When it comes to classic frocks, few styles are as iconic as the wrap dress. A lot of trends have come and gone but this timeless piece has stuck around for decades. It has remained a staple in every stylish woman’s closet, and with good reason.
Fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg first popularized it in the 1970s and it has never gone out of style since then. Countless brands have since jumped on the bandwagon with their own versions, making it accessible to every woman regardless of fashion sense and budget. Whether high end or high street, whatever the season, the wrap dress (along with its sister, the faux wrap) is a classic favourite. It comes in many colours and prints to suit every taste, as well as in a variety of season-appropriate fabrics so you can rock the style all year long!
Now that the Christmas party season is fast approaching, why not opt for this timeless style? Here are 7 chic choices from Nicola Ross.
